This is the enemy of the Palestinian people not the Israeli people
There is absolutely no need, cause or justification for anyone to start a war. We are after all civilized human beings. Any international incident can be resolved peacefully. Those who start wars are nothing more than criminals with a criminal intent to cause the death of another human being. The most effective course of action to end any war is to go after the person or persons who gave the order to attack another country. One person does not have the authority to launch a war against another especially in a democratic society. If a leader of one country decides to go to war with another country that leader is committing crimes that include crimes against peace, crimes against humanity and war crimes.
In the game of chess the objective is to remove your opponent’s king in as few moves as possible. The object of the game is to checkmate your opponent’s king, whereby the king is under immediate attack (in “check”) and there is no way to remove it from attack on the next move. The game is over as soon as you capture your opponent’s king and your opponent surrenders to you. Wars of aggression can be ended quickly simply by applying the game of chess to your self-defense strategy. Defend your people by taking the course of action that will quickly capture and remove your opponent’s leadership.
International law and domestic law allow lethal force to be used in self-defense against armed attacks. Whether it’s George W Bush engaged in an unprovoked attack against Iraq, Afghanistan or Iran, or the CIA kidnapping foreign citizens from around the World, it’s legal to use lethal force in response to those kinds of attacks. There’s no special protection given to heads of state that protects them from the otherwise lawful use of lethal force in self-defense. Nuremberg established that heads of state have no immunity from responsibility for aggressive war. There’s no logical legal principle that says it’s better to spare George W Bush’s life, when he’s the head war criminal who started the war, and killed tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of relatively innocent people.
Any uniformed member of the Military is a lawful target under the laws of armed conflict. If he is the head policy maker in deciding to launch an aggressive war, then he’s committing an international crime; denying him any right to the kind of protection we give hospital workers or Red Cross workers or the like. If we want to deter aggression, we have to extract a cost from those who are making the decisions. George W Bush gave up over 3500 of his country’s young men and women in his war against Iraq. He is certainly willing to give up thousands more in his war of terrorism in Iraq. He’s not willing to put his own safety at risk, and so it’s very important that we make it clear that we have the legal right to go after even heads of state engaged in massive international aggression.
The only logical and legal course of action to defend ones country and countrymen from an unlawful military attack from another country is to hold the person or persons who gave the order to attack, accountable for their criminal acts. Instead of retaliating against the people of the country whose leader ordered the attack on your country and countrymen one should only attack those leaders who gave the order. No one else should suffer or pay for the crimes of the war leaders. Only the leaders who order their country to attack and murder the people of another country should suffer and pay with their lives. The Nuremberg Trial established “Legal Self-Defense” against Bush’s wars of aggression, the CIA kidnappings and Olmert’s acts of aggression against the Palestinian people. The honorable and patriotic course of action to end their illegal wars is to target those criminal leaders. Hamas and the Palestinian people have the right to self-defense and their legal rights include only attacks against the criminal leadership, not against the innocent civilians in Israel. As soon as the leaders who gave the order to attack and kill your people are eliminated then the war will end. If someone takes over command of the Israeli or US military forces after the war leaders are eliminated and they too order more attacks against you and your country and your people, then they too are legal and legitimate targets. Infiltrating the enemy’s country and attacking only the leadership will end the war quickly and deter future leaders from ordering their people to attack and kill another.
